Who Really Is Becky With The Good Hair?

Enough speculation.

Who Really Is Becky With The Good Hair?

Beyoncé’s release of "Lemonade" made quite a splash, and the album continues to spark conversations and articles. Videos from the Formation World Tour pop up on my Facebook news feed daily. Attending the concert in Seattle was amazing, and the conversations with my cousin on the drive over were pretty great. Like many out there, we wondered, who is Becky with the good hair?

There are plenty of stories covering Jay-Z’s cheating, but does that mean Becky is one of the alleged women?

Not necessarily.

Thanks to my cousin’s obsession with both Beyoncé and "Parks and Recreation," she has another theory predicting who Becky is. In the last five minutes of the first episode of season five (Miss Knope goes to Washington), Leslie brings up Hot Rebecca, the embodiment of Leslie’s jealousy. She is afraid that her boyfriend, who is in Washington, D.C. will be hanging out with Hot Rebecca. Leslie knows that this probably is happening, but she still worries.

Now, I am not saying that Beyoncé watched this episode and wrote "Sorry." I am not saying she created "Becky with the Good Hair" from "Hot Rebecca," but because both Rebecca and Becky are possibly the “other woman." We need to consider Becky with the good hair is an amalgam too.

Moreover, she can be more than the little green monster on your shoulder. I know that I will subconsciously attach my bad feelings to people that I feel threaten me. Whether that be in my academic endeavors or competing in a friendship. I have no real reason to dislike this person, but the impression I have of them is my own creation, my insecurities.

Even the Queen Bee could be insecure. To think that this goddess of a woman could doubt herself is hard to imagine, but remember she is only human. Just like the rest of us.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
